Subject: Good show, but I wasn't there
Yeah so the walk-off in Terrapin was weird. Oddly, he made it to "Job is to shed light, not to master." And then decided he had to take a dump? It's strange how leading up to the departure, Jer's playing turns to running up and down scales, which is pretty much second easiest to playing straight cords. Must've had a momentary lapse of reason. Anyhow I found Minglewood to be the best tune in the first set.

A pretty good Terrapin till Jerry ends it. Maybe it was someone in the crowd or he thought someone in the band was slacking?? Jerry sounds fine till he leaves.

Saw irvine '83 thru '86, Orange Cpunty is the armpit of America. The crowds at this place were always obnoxious little SoCal twerps, nothing like a Greek or First show to say the least. '85 was at least a decent stand of shows, '86 was not. The band took a nosedive after the Kaiser shows in feb, the spring east coast tour was average, the spring west coast shows were worse, the Greeks were pretty6 good then the summer tour is when the bottom fell out.

This is a fantastic board, Joani's tapes are the best and Charlie is the transfer master. But the show is a complete dog.

Subject: still gets more then 3 stars
Just because jerry walked off during Terr a pin doesn't mean this copy should get only 3 stars. I am giving this one 5 just to bring the average back up where it should be.It's a Walker/Miller for god sake they put together some of the very best sounding uploads on this ite.

Subject: Jerry's walkoff
He was likely already in the throes of diabetes and had to take a leak or something, or just needed to sit down. We figured Terrapin would pick up again after the drums, which would have been REALLY cool, but alas no. I don't recall the walkoff being a big deal. Sort of like "OK Jerry . . ."

Pretty good show otherwise, but nothing exceptional here.

Subject: not bad
I don't really know exactly why Jerry walked off stage after Lady With A Fan (and not really in the middle of a song), and I don't think we will ever really know unless we talked to a band member directly. But I think it makes it unique and interesting. If Jerry wasn't feeling well and thought it was an opportune time to take a little break, by all means he more than deserved to. If he was upset about something or if he thought he wanted to do it like in the So Far video, he could have done whatever he wanted. Hey, when you think about it, they didn't always finish Playing In The Band or Sugar Magnolia or Dark Star or the other songs that I can't think of at the moment. Plus Terrapin Station was the name of the entire suite if you will. The man clearly gave us much more in his life than any of us really deserved. The man went into a coma for more than a week, less than three months after this, came back just a few months later, got sick again in 1992 and whatever else he went through and gave us nine years of himself after almost dying in 1986. I've heard and never believed he wanted to tour as much as he ended up doing towards the end, but he felt he would let people down if he didn't. Jerry was clearly one of the most generous people any of us will encounter in a lifetime. They all were. Plus, I really like this show. I gave it 4 stars because it sounds sort of like someone didn't set the bias on normal on a playback somewhere in a copy, but I think it sounds pretty good. Thanks to all of the wonderful souls that brought this show and all the other great posts to fruition. I am forever grateful to everybody. These shows really help me through some tough times and make the good times even better. I'm really digging them. Thanks so much!

Subject: Terrapin Train Wreck!!
Contrary to what the previous reviewer states, this was not Jerry "wrapping up Terrapin to leave it to the drummers (per usual)". Jerry abruptly walked off stage in the middle of the song. There was no Inspiration!!", no "spiral light of Venus", no "Crickets and Cicadas sing", and certainly no pulling into Terrapin. I was between the Soundboard and the stage in the center about 25 feet from the stage, I remember Bobby doing a double take as Jerry left the stage, seemingly stunned, and looking around with a confused look on his face at the others to see what was going on. He joined Brent in trying to save a little face by going into Don't Need Love. I also don't buy that Jerry did this because they were getting ready to release "So Far" (which was completed the previous year.)which only had lady with a fan from the song on it. if that was the case, why only do it once. It was a very sad and shocking moment, and, to me at least, signalled the beginning of the end of a long, wonderful, strange trip with me and the band. I scaled back my touring, and for the next nine years saw the boys only when they played in my "backyard"
